Our Story

The seeds of Serenity were sown in the hearts and home of retired couple, Jefferson and Sarah. In God’s perfect timing the Serenity Seventh-day Adventist Church was dedicated in our sanctuary here on 25 Duke Road, March 16-18, 2001.

Adventist Community Service

Objective: To discover and fulfill the needs of our community. Mobilize responses to specific concerns. Organize relief programs and recruit volunteers. Establish cooperation with other community service agencies to avoid duplication. Communicates to the church and other organizations of our services. Reports to the church of the needs that were met.

In His earthly ministry Christ worked out a pattern for His followers to copy. He “went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed” (Acts 10:38). Christ identified with the poor and oppressed. “He fed the hungry and healed the sick… By the good He accomplished, by His loving words and kindly deeds, He interpreted the Gospel to men,” comments Ellen White. “Christ’s work in behalf of man is not finished. It continues today. In like manner His ambassadors are to preach the gospel and to reveal His pitying love for lost and perishing souls. By an unselfish interest in those who need help they are to give a practical demonstration of the truth of the gospel” (Welfare Ministry, pages 56-57).

When a church serves the world it is an expression of the love of Christ to the world. It is the body of Christ serving the world’s needs and being used by the Holy Spirit as an agency of salvation.

The church was created for service. It serves the Lord in praise, serves one another in love, and serves the world in humility. “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works” (Ephesians 2:10).
